After taking a long break between records, a six-year gap that can be explained by uprooting his life in London to move to the Scottish Highlands and build a new studio, Edwyn Collins' third post-stroke album Badbea both sticks to the formula he's established and takes a few chances, too. Working with a band of longtime collaborators that includes multi-instrumentalists Carwyn Ellis and Sean Read plus guitarist James Welbourne and drummer Jake Hutton, who's on loan from his son Will's band, Collins has crafted a record full of tightly wound rockers and nostalgic ballads. Tougher and more musically expansive than either Losing Sleep or Understated, this is the first record where Collins' record-making ability has caught up to his evocative singing and incisive writing. As on previous albums, there is a sturdy batch of Northern Soul-inspired knockouts; "In the Morning" is horn-driven and Motown-tough with an amazing guitar solo that brings back the same tone from "A Girl Like You." "Tensions Rising" marries the uptown drive of soul with some gritty guitars and Collins' no-nonsense vocals, and "It's All About You" is a lovely duet between Edwyn and Read that features some deluxe sax playing by the latter. Some pretty, deeply introspective songs balance these and give Collins a fine backing for tender remembrances of the past; "It All Makes Sense to Me," "Beauty," and the title track are all acoustic guitar ballads that Edwyn sings with gentle grace. That loud/quiet, excited/calm dichotomy will be familiar to those who heard his recent work, but the richness of the arrangements and the variety of sonic approaches make this just a little more interesting. He also tries out some new genres, ripping off a quick and nasty punk track ("Outside,") a bubbling, synth-driven dance rock track ("Glasgow to London") that mashes up Orange Juice and LCD Soundsystem with Edwyn delivering a typically sly vocal, a slow-grinding noise rock that puts the JAMC to shame ("I Want You") and a down-and-dirty blues-riffing cut ("Station to Station"). Through it all Collins is in fine voice and his lyrics are intensely personal, touching on his past, present, and hopeful future while managing to sound both devil-may-care and perfectly in touch with his hard-fought and won station in life. It's easy enough to be moved by Edwyn Collins' recovery and continued progress; he's truly an inspirational figure. What makes his continued presence in the recording studio even more wonderful is that his albums keep getting better and better, too; deeper and more fully colored and nuanced in both melody and sound. ~ Tim Sendra

Daredevil Records use The Planet app powered by Shopify to neutralize your shipping emissions and removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Daredevil Records has committed to donating the most amount of money possible from your order to offset C02 emissions.  

This includes funding innovative solutions such as direct air capture and mineralization, and a small portion of nature-based carbon removal.

These funds companies such as 44.01, Carbofex, CarbonBuilt, CarbonCure, Charm Industrial, Climeworks, DroneSeed, Grassroots Carbon, Heirloom Carbon, Loam, Noya, Pachama, Planetary, Remora, Running Tide, and Sustaera.

Carbon Removal Process

Carbon removal is the process of capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and then storing it.

For example, if a truck or a plane that delivers your shipment releases 1 kg of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, and you are subscribed to the Planet app, then Shopify ensures that 1kg of CO2 is also sucked from the atmosphere and stored away using solutions and technologies in Shopify Sustainability Fund.

There is a fast-growing and evolving sector with many carbon removal technologies in different stages of development. These technologies include nature-based solutions, such as reforestation and soil carbon sequestration and more high-tech solutions, such as direct air capture and mineralization.

How Shipping Emissions Are Calculated

The Planet app combines data from our store with industry data and peer-reviewed models to estimate how much CO2 your shipments release into the environment. Because the Planet app makes sure that CO2 shipping emissions are removed entirely, all values that are used in the data models are rounded up.

Review the following table to learn more about the which data is used to determine shipping emissions:


Primary value

If primary value isn't available


Weight of the shipment

An average shipment weight


Distance traveled according to the tracking data

Straight-line distance between the origin and destination address, multiplied by an uncertainty factor of 1.5

Type of transportation

Truck or plane carbon emissions, determined by speed and distance

Truck emissions

To estimate your emissions, the Planet app uses order tracking data associated with the tracking number assigned to the shipment. If the tracking number isn’t available or the shipping carrier isn’t supported, then the Planet app multiplies the estimated emissions by an uncertainty factor of 1.5. The uncertainty factor helps make sure that all your emissions are removed. If any data is inconsistent or missing, then the Planet app uses a reasonable maximum value instead.

For example, suppose that you ship a package from Boston to New York. The straight-line distance is 305.94 km, but the shortest road route is around 350 km. If tracking data is available, then the Planet app uses the exact distance traveled.

However, if no tracking data is provided, then 305.94 km is used in the base calculation, and the resulting emissions would be multiplied by 1.5. This calculation accounts for variations in the route, such as distances traveled from post offices and distribution centers, and the route taken by the courier to deliver the package to your customer's door.

Considerations for using the Planet app

Review the following considerations for the Carbon Neutral Shipping Planet app:

  • The models and estimates aren’t exact, but the Planet app overestimates your emissions to make sure that they’re entirely removed. 
  • The Planet app removes only carbon (CO2) emissions that account for 95% of the climate impact from burning fossil fuels for transportation. Other emissions such as CH4, N2O, and GHG aren’t removed.
  • Orders that are shipped by sea transportation (we do not ship any orders by sea) don't generate the data required to accurately calculate emissions. Instead, industry-accepted alternative methods are used to calculate emissions.
  • The Planet app currently focuses on addressing emissions from shipping-related transportation.
